Motor Control center (MCC)

A motor control center (MCC) is a type of electrical switchboard, which contains one or more motor starter sections. The advantage of utilizing a CUBIC switchboard solution for motor starter sections is that the solution can be combined with other distribution switchboards. Motor control centers differ from other types of switchboards as they often contain more extensive communication equipment regarding start/stop of engines as well as signals concerning the function of the engines and motors. 

Application of motor control centers

Motor control center solutions are often the preferred choice, when the power effect need exceeds 1000 A, and several motors and engines should be controlled. A MCC solution is applicable in various industries which often have widely different needs. With a MCC switchboard from CUBIC, you are guaranteed the ability to deliver in relation to all individual needs and requirements. A CUBIC modular solution provides you with a high- quality switchboard dimensioned and constructed to real conditions. The risk of expensive downtime is thus reduced to a minimum. 

Full versatility

All switchboard enclosure solutions from CUBIC designed and constructed with motor starter sections are constructed in the Modular System. This provides the greatest possible extent of freedom in relation to height, width and depth of the solution and a free choice of electrical components. 
No other enclosure system of power provides the same freedom of being able to meet changing needs. If needs change, simply reconfigure or extend your current solution. Or combine it with other CUBIC solutions. The switchboard builder has the possibility to adapt the size of the sections individually and construct individual motor starter sections up to FORM 4.

A safe and reliable solution with thorough documentation

All solutions from CUBIC have gone through extensive and thorough testing. The tests are carried out by several of the most acknowledged test laboratories. Operating staff is in safe hands, as the Modular System provides a high safety for the personnel working on the switchboard. A solution from CUBIC, including MCC, is IEC/EN 61439 verified. Furthermore, the busbar systems are type-tested up to 6300 A.
